Did you know that sex burns off as much calories as a 30-minute jog?

According to a study published by the Public Library of Science, which measured the energy expended during a sexual activity, sex can be considered as a very important aspect of human life, that also serves as a physical exercise, boosting a person’s physical, mental, and social well-being, overall. If sex can be considered as a physical exercise, then endurance is clearly needed to achieve the benefits from it.

But what would a person who can’t last long enough in bed experience? Does sex still feel as pleasurable and can it still serve as a physical exercise in the absence of a much-needed time to prolong it? 

On the average, sexual activity typically lasts only between 7 to 8 minutes. This is what a study published on the Journal of Sex Research specifically determined. Whereas in a different 2005 research involving 500 couples, a median length of 5.4 minutes was recorded. From these studies, men are generally expected to last somewhere between 5 to 10 minutes during sex to fall into the category of “average duration.” Watson, A. (2019)

But how do men experience sex when premature ejaculation keeps nearly all pleasurable benefits so distant?

When it comes to sexual activity, the level of pleasure one gains is often proportional to how long a person can last in bed. While this mostly applies to men, lasting longer in bed is generally a good thing for all parties to achieve satisfaction and optimal pleasure in the activity. Needless to say, all men would desire to have the ability to last longer in bed in order to keep their partners happy, satisfied, keep their bond stronger, and keep any sex-related anxiety at bay.

How to Treat Premature Ejaculation

Even though there is no rule book saying when reaching orgasm should happen during sex, it is safe to say that if ejaculation occurs too soon or only within a few moments after sex, it can definitely spoil the excitement of the activity. When this happens every time, it can affect the quality of a man’s sex life which may result as growing anxious feelings about sex or feeling disconnected with their partner.

Premature ejaculation is a common sex-related condition in men. But even though it is common, it is still not a normal condition that one should live with or tolerate for the rest of a person’s life. Sex is an important part of life and being hampered of the pure pleasure and satisfaction that all parties hope to achieve during sex can ultimately create problems and cause tension to arise. It can be said that premature ejaculation is like an unwanted third party in your sex life that is better off gone. It stands in the way of many good things, creating more problems than pleasure.

Men who experience premature ejaculation could ejaculate soon as the foreplay starts or quickly right after penetration. From time to time, ejaculation could happen sooner than desired by both parties, but that is not necessarily a cause for concern, unless it happens consistently and frequently. If such is the case, then this is a clear symptom that signals it is time to have the condition checked.

Premature ejaculation treatment begins with a proper diagnosis from a health professional. It is typically conducted with the aid of a questionnaire which helps your doctor to determine whether the condition is caused by either physical/biological factors or psychological factors. 

Psychological factors may include depression, fear, worry, anxiety, early sexual encounters, or the nature of a person’s relationship with their current partner. In cases where the health issue is caused by any of the following factors, premature ejaculation treatment is best addressed with the help of a mental health professional.

In some cases, premature ejaculation takes root from biological factors such as hormonal imbalance, prostate/urethra inflammation, genetic predisposition, or levels of neurotransmitters in the brain. If such factors are identified as the cause, patients may get referred to a urologist, a doctor specializing in urinary system-related health issues, to begin premature ejaculation treatment.

For many reasons, the ability to last longer in bed is important for any man. And experiencing the exact opposite not only brings anxiety, but even makes a lot of men shy away from seeing their doctor and having it checked. A lot of men tend to feel embarrassed opening up about their truth and consequently also making treatment impossible. 

But just like any issue, premature ejaculation is a problem that comes with several solutions. Once diagnosed, there are multiple options available to a person in order to get the best treatment for their condition. 

Treatments may come in the form of psychological therapy, behavioral therapy which involves specific methods that lead to an improvement in one’s condition, and medical intervention that comes in the form of prescription medicines, numbing creams, and sprays.
